Topic: So glad to find this community!
Two weeks ago, my uncle was diagnosed with Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma.
He was feeling ill and had been having symptoms of jaundice. The doctors initially suspected just an infection, but further tests showed a mass.
According to the oncologist, the tumor is still localized, but has formed in all of the branches of the bile duct so his only option is a full liver transplant. He'll start chemo and radiation soon in the mean time. He is currently receiving treatment at UCLA.
This is all extremely new to me. I'd never even heard of bile duct cancer until my uncle's diagnosis. I'm extremely close to him, we are a close family so this is very difficult for all of us. I'm so happy to have found a group of people to connect with who are experiencing this type of cancer (either personally or a loved one). I could use any and all of the support and experiences you may have.
Thanks for reading!
